If you have recovered from our
last blossoming of literary roses,
fasten your seed belt-we may culti-
vate corn this time.
But perhaps we'll hit the silk. The
mailbag exploded with extraordinary
bulletins this week, most of which
were transmitted to Ann Landers, but
the remainder are of such timely,
bursting, lambasting, intermushinal
importance that you should carry
them in your hearts forever like birds
of a philogossip feather.
Chirp 1: An anonymous reader
asks, "Who is Handsome at the Cris-
tobal Telephone Exchange?" I bleed
with remorse, but I don't know. The
Princess Phone, perhaps? All those
who can correctly guess Handsome's
name will have their telephone
service discontinued for 36 months.
Chirp 2: Sam Kramer, a member
of the Bureau of the Budget who
came down to inspect our books, took
a boa constrictor back to the States
with him. That's an excellent omen.
He could have taken back a bush-
master. What he intends to do with
the snake is beside the point. ". .. be
ye as gentle as doves and wise as
serpents . ." Now, that's what we
need for our budget.
On other fronts, one of our
distinguished employees, Rubelio
Quintero, has had a name change-
from tabaquito to Lady Killer. Rube-
lio, that's shocking-giving up one
vice only to assume another.
Other vices were exercised last
week. Some terrible individual stole
a newspaper from the cafeteria.
Demented creature that he was, the
ogre tore this invaluable contraband
into many small pieces and put them
in somebody's shoes, which weren't
being worn at the time (how else?).
He then fled.
The other somebody, returning
from his descalzo donut-dunking,
proceeded to resume his footgear
and, as his secretary appeared in the
doorway, she found him holding one
of the shoes up to the light, mum-
bling to himself incoherently:
"I never knew all them pieces of
paper was in there before . ." (Stay
in there, citizen. You can never get
enough reading.)

Back on straight gossip for a while,
a mysterious increase has been re-

It is said that tourists are fascinated

timidity who wishes information

That's the end of the printable
part of the mailbag, so now lying is
in order. However, I have something
perhaps purer than the pure lie-one

I suggest this alternative:

drink, drink with me."
Set 'em up.
